The deadline for the Lakers to use the "stretch" provision on Steve Nash passed over the weekend. The 40-year-old point guard is heading into his third year with the team, earning $9.7 million for the 2014-15 season.

But I still love to play, practice and work on my game. I’m going to spend hopefully many many years living this life without basketball. It’ll be nice to play one more year.” Los Angeles Daily News
